Poem TA Delmore Quote Iris Murdoch

Prometheus Father


He did not create
the Frisbee but brought it
to the family as a means
of sport and exercise. He
was the master of the flicked wrist
and cutting air. He made
his children wanting-
but not wanting enough.
Always control
and accuracy of the disc.

When he noticed his tykes
becoming his equal with the disc
Prometheus went out, purchased
a ping pong table and started the cycle
all over again.


Murdoch said, "Writing is like getting married. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed at one's luck."
